Case registered against JUI-F senator for verbally abusing female analyst
S REPORTER ISLAMABAD—The capital territory police on Tuesday registered a case against Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (Fazl) Senator Hafiz Hamdullah, who allegedly misbehaved with rights activist Marvi Sirmed during a TV talk show a few days back.
The case was registered against Hafiz Hamdullah under Section 394, 506 at Kohsar police station over charges of threatening and misbehaving with a woman.
Police had delayed the filing of the case due to their failure to obtain footage of the show they wanted to watch before registering the report. But finally, after watching the footage of the said show, the case was registered.
According to the standard operating procedure (SOP), the Senate chairman had been informed about the incident, police claims.
Sirmed alleged that police were not cooperating with her and said that she had decided to approach a court to seek registration of her FIR. The JUI-F senator has reportedly used abusive language against Sirmed during a television show last week, thus triggering uproar on social media.
